Prog Personality Of The Year 2010
« on: December 04, 2010, 12:51:35 PM »
Greetings

As a bit of fun last year, I instigated the inaugural "Prog Personality Of the Year" award, to recognise in a non-financial and indeed, non-ceremonial way, the person(ality) whom, above all, graced this thing we call "Prog" .

And I feel like doing it again !

Last year the imperious Twang, of this parish, won the popular vote, and well deserved it was too.

Vote for who you like, whether that be artist, promoter, label head, forum member, merchandise “technician” or pod-cast DJ. I'll gather the votes and announce the winner on 1st January 2011 (hangover notwithstanding)

You can use the voting form at the right hand side of my website http://http://gable-end.blogspot.com/ , or PM me or just reply to this thread on the forum. All votes carry the same weight, so in the best British tradition, it's a first past the post system (none of that liberal dalliance with AV here  ;) )

Ithangu !

The only name that jumps to mind for 2010 is Mike Portnoy and his shock departure from Dream Theater.

Prog Personality Of The Year 2010 - Update 20/12/10

Good News Everyone,

I can exclusively reveal that, thanks to the incredible generosity of The Amazing Wilf, I will be taking over an episode of The European Perspective (http://www.theeuropeanperspective.com broadcast on the Dividing Line Broadcast Network http://www.thedividingline.com), to announce the winners of the Prog Personality of the Year 2010 poll, in a show scheduled for 15 Jan 2011

Remember, vote for who you think has contributed the most to this glorious prog world in 2010, whether that be artist, promoter, label head, forum member, merchandise “technician” or pod-cast DJ !

You can use the voting form at http://gable-end.blogspot.com/ or PM me !

I know there are a lot of polls bidding for your attention at this time year, so thanks for the response so far. The poll will remain open until 31 December 2010.

So vote away ! If nothing else it’ll be a chance for me to “entertain” you with some choice Post-Xmas Prog Cheese a la Bert !!

I will endeavour to have an "official" web page up soon. In the meantime, a Happy Xmas and jolly New Year to you all.

Bert xx

Could this possibly be because the regular host of the show can't be also the winner?

Cool, Bert!

My plot of Muppets taking control of an internet radio station is starting to look doable.  :D

Greetings Frost*ies,

All is safely gathered in and I can report a largely trouble free and non-hijacked (with a couple of exceptions) poll.

Unfortunately, due to some technical issues, I will no longer be broadcasting the awards show on DLBN on 15 Jan, but am finalising arrangements for a re-scheduled show and host. More on this exciting development to follow.

The results are an excellent mix and should generate a good listen at least !

Thanks to everyone who voted.

I thought that they'd covered everyone, then noticed that Oliver Wakeman is there, but not his dad!   :lol:

"simon and jem's dad"  :lol:

Presumably for his narration on the Big Red Spark, not just creating them?!

Congrats to the various Frost*ies in the list!  8-)
